BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - One Camp Fire victim is working to overcome her injuries and learning to walk again.

Terra Hill suffered second and third-degree burns across her body after a harrowing escape from the flames.

Hill was found during the disaster by firefighters who heard her calls for help but sadly, her roommate lost his life.

Due to the severity of her burns, Hill was placed in a medically induced coma for two months and after multiple surgeries, she is now relearning how to walk.

"I look in the mirror and I don't see me. There's somebody there but it's not me," Hill said. "I will walk again, I push myself every day."

Hill looks forward to the day that she can personally thank the firefighters who saved her life.
