One of the patients has since died, according to the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office, but an identity hasn't been released.
The fire was under control by 9:08 p.m. Fire crews determined that two units were damaged heavily, while two had "extensive smoke damage." About 32 units were without power after the fire.
Ten people were displaced and are being helped by the American Red Cross.
The cause of the fire is believed to be from someone smoking in the same room as an oxygen tank.
