REDDING, Calif. - A Redding father-daughter duo are being called heroes after helping first responders and community members during the devasting Carr Fire.
"It was hard at first because of all the smoke you could hardly see the trees in my front yard," said 17-year-old Sienna Resendez.
When the Carr Fire blew up, she and her family were evacuated from their home.
But it wasn't long before she could be spotted climbing more than 70-feet to help her community connect back to the internet.
"I climbed up all the towers and was bringing down equipment and bringing up new equipment and the entire time I have this suffocating face mask on," she said.
Resendez works with her dad, Jonathon, to bring internet service to rural parts of Shasta County.
But this work was like nothing she had ever done before.
Step after step Resendez kept climbing towers to help bring free hot spots to her neighbors and while she has a fear of heights that didn't stop her from stepping up, literally.
"As all other millennials and people, in general, I am very selfish but I don't know I thought this was one of the only times that I could help on a larger scale," she said. "So I felt like I was making a difference and I like that I was like I'm helping people."
