For a few minutes on a quiet evening in late April, it looked like our beloved KRISPY KREME
was in danger. An apartment and retail construction site near the Ponce de Leon doughnut bakery went up in flames that night, and Atlantans cheered the firefighters for keeping the fire from injuring our precious city treasure. If Sherman were to come back to life, that's the first thing we'd dig a trench around, and let the flames only get close enough to keep the glaze warm and gooey.
