They've waited months for this moment.

On Wednesday, the family of a 16-year-old severely burned in a fire is celebrating his return home.

Timothy "Tiger" Desjadon has been in the hospital since May.

He received burns over 50 percent of his body, while trying to escape a fire inside his home.

On Wednesday, he was released from Shriner's Hospital in Cincinnati, and returned home to Winchester.

His family and friends celebrated with a welcome home party.

While he may be out of the hospital, doctors say Desjadon will still continue his physical therapy from home.
