Friends and family of a firefighter injured on the job gathered at McGoverns Restaurant in Fall River Friday night. Steve Lopes was injured while battling a chimney fire in Westport in March.

He fell 30 feet from the roof, and needed surgery. Lopes is well loved by the community and many know by the nickname "Portuguese Fireman." Another firefighter also fell in that fire. Investigators said that icy conditions on the roof were to blame.
