Firefighters put their lives on the line every day, and it's one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
But for a Phoenix mother and her daughter, it's a family affair. They make a living fighting fires, and they're doing it together in the same firehouse.
There have been father-son teams before, husband-wife teams before, but this is the first mother-daughter team in Phoenix Fire history.
It wasn't long into our interview with Kim and Kayleigh Packebush that they got called out to fight a fire. The team works out of the same fire station.
Kim, with the department for 18 years, drives the truck. Kayleigh, with just 1 year under her belt, is a rover and goes wherever they need her.
"A paramedic was off today, so I actually got roved in here, and she's the other paramedic so she's my partner today," says Kayleigh, the daughter.
Firefighting runs in the family. Kim's married to a retired captain. They once worked in the same firehouse. But there are some rules for working with family.
"You're not allowed to supervise your own family members. I would be harder on her than anybody else would," says Kim, the mother.
Neither worries about each other's safety.
"She's solid. She's stronger than I am, she's smarter than I am, at this point in time at my age she's more capable than I am," says Kim.
When this 24-hour shift is over, Kayleigh will go on to another fire station. But mother and daughter will see each other soon -- after all, they live next door to each other.
They also have their two-day weekends during the same days of the week.
