BUCYRUS, OH- The Bucyrus Fire Department hosted a pancake breakfast on Saturday morning to help raise funds to purchase three historical Bucyrus fire engines.

Firefighter Barry Herschler said that the department plans to use the historical fire engines to help educate youth and to use during community events like parades.

"We had a few people in the community that bought our old trucks and they fixed them up and we don't want to see them leave the community so we're trying to raise money to buy them from these people that own them now," Herschler said.

Two of the trucks the station is hoping to purchase were at the pancake breakfast, a 1928 Seagrave Engine 1949 Seagrave Engine.

"These trucks ran out of this very station anywhere from 1928-1989," Herschler said.

Anyone interested in seeing the fire engines or donating to the cost of maintenance, can stop out at the Bucyrus City Fire Department located at 223 E Mansfield Street in Bucyrus.
