Sounds quite possible. Where you looking at the original as a FWs png file?
In which case it would have had a load of extra information embedded so you
could re-edit the file.
The easiest way to be sure is to upload the image/s somewhere so we could
look at them.

If I understand your scenario properly: your original .jpg was 31k; after you modified it in Fireworks and output a smaller .jpg and .gif combination, the .jpg portion was 2k. You want to know if such a file size reduction is possible.
Sure. For one thing, it sounds like you have two images, now, instead of one, so the smaller .jpg image will have a smaller file size. Plus, any time you re-save a .jpg, you lose more information and the file size becomes smaller. Finally, check the Quality on the export; the lower the number the smaller the file size will be. Since you're re-saving a .jpg file, you might want to raise the Quality to the highest value you can get.
