999 death inquiry.
An investigation was launched after the firefighters unsuccessfully tried to save the man's life.
The fire crew, from South Elmsall, West Yorkshire, was sent to an address in Hemsworth, because there were no paramedic crews available.
West Yorkshire Fire Service confirmed that firefighters did what they could for the man but by the time paramedics arrived it was too late.
