Lexington police were able to find the humor in the situation Monday when a Krispy Kreme truck caught fire on, and by Tuesday the doughnut company had joined in on the fun.

The truck caught fire near Man o’ War Boulevard and Pink Pigeon Parkway, according to WKYT, the Herald-Leader’s reporting partner.

No one was injured and the fire was put out quickly, but the truck was seriously damaged, WKYT reported.

Not long after the fire, the Lexington Police Department posted on social media several pictures of officers showing their dismay at the loss. The department’s Facebook post had been shared more than 60,000 times as of Tuesday night.

Krispy Kreme joined in on the joke with a response to the Lexington Police Department.

On Tuesday, the company tweeted: “We’re thinking of you during this difficult time ... and have more doughnuts on the way!”
