Can people in heaven fall to hell?

This came to mind as I asked another question in regard’s to God’s love for all, even the devil. If his highest angel in Heaven could fall from grace, couldn’t a mere human as well for that matter? I remember being taught that there are no negative feelings in Heaven, only good, so it boggles my mind as to how an angel could even think of doing wrong in the first place.
