A Long Island community gathered on Wednesday to say goodbye to a former fire captain who helped with recovery efforts at ground zero.

Former Plainview Fire Captain Danny Levy, 54, died Monday from respiratory problems.

Friends and former co-workers say Levy's problems began shortly after his work at the World Trade Center site.

Nassau County Executive Ed Manganao has ordered flags to fly at half-staff in his honor through January 15.
