Fortunately, it turned out that the truck was not carrying any doughnuts as it had finished up its delivery route for the day when the fire broke out.
Even so, Quincy Quarry hopes that grief counselors were made available to impacted officers as lingering effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be pernicious.
