A 78-YEAR-OLD woman who died just moments after making a 999 call from her burning flat has been named.
Phyllis Allen was found slumped in her armchair still clutching her phone by firefighters who went to tackle the fire at her flat at Baker Street in Oakes.
The fire had broken out in the kitchen at 5.30pm on Wednesday.
Mrs Allen was in the living-room.
Firefighters carried her outside and tried in vain to revive her.
An inquest will be held into her death.
The fire was confined to the kitchen and is believed to have started in a pan left on the cooker.
The kitchen was heavily smoke-logged.
The first-floor flat is one of several in Flower Court, which is just off Baker Street, which is a narrow cobbled road which runs between New Hey Road and Wellington Street.
The flats are Huddersfield Flower Fund Homes and were opened in April 1979.
