DALLAS (AP) — One man has died in a Dallas apartment fire but three people survived after tying sheets together and climbing from a second-floor balcony.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says a 4-year-old boy smelled smoke early Thursday and woke his mother and father. The parents and the boy escaped unharmed.

Evans says a man who was also in the apartment died at the scene. His name wasn't immediately released.

Investigators are trying to determine what started the blaze. Further details weren't immediately available.
