A fire official who worked at ground zero has died of cancer.

Steven Mosiello served as the right-hand man to the chief of the FDNY on Sept. 11. The 58-year-old was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2009. Newsday reports the department classified his cancer as presumed to be linked to his work at ground zero.

He died Friday at a hospice in Melville, N.Y. The Massapequa resident was a fire marshal from 1979 to 2002 and one of the first responders to the trade center. He worked alongside Chief Peter Ganci who was killed when the south tower collapsed.

Al Hagan of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association called Mosiello "a dedicated firefighter and fire marshal who gave the better part of his adult life to the city of New York.''
