KINGWOOD -

Buckwheat cakes are a popular breakfast item in our area, especially in Preston County.

The Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department held its monthly 'Firefighter's Breakfast' with the main course being buckwheat cakes. It also served sausage, eggs and pretty much every other breakfast food you can think of.

The fire department uses the breakfast to raise money to buy new equipment.

"We average around a thousand people each breakfast," said Chris Metheny, from the Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department. "We have people come in from all over, Maryland, Pennsylvania from down south in the state here. It's a great thing, it's a really big fundraiser for us. This is what we do besides the buckwheat festival."

The 'Firefighter's Breakfast' is the second Sunday of each month at the Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department.
