Investigators said a four-year-old child in the apartment woke up and alerted his parents, but a fourth person in the unit, an adult male, was not able to escape.
The cause of the fire has not been released.
The American Red Cross was assisting tenants who were displaced.
Firefighters from Carrollton and Plano were called out to assist their Dallas colleagues.
