A Locust Valley retiree died in a fire at his home Friday, a week after he had returned from a rehabilitation center after a mini stroke, family and neighbors said. Nassau police said one man died in the fire, whose name was not released. Mario Moccia said his brother-in-law Peter Zukas, 81, died despite attempts by him and a neighbor to put out the flames themselves. Videojournalist: Network News Long Island (Nov. 8, 2013)
