The Westport firefighter who took a frightening fall back in March is finally back home.

47-year-old Steve Lopes was released from his rehab center Saturday morning after a 30-foot fall on the job left him hospitalized.

Lopes was fighting a chimney fire at a home in early March when he fell from the icy roof and suffered serious injuries. 

Lopes is also a local comedian known as the "Portuguese Fireman" who raises money for local charities.
