A spokeswoman for Tayside Fire and Rescue said that firefighters were checking the flats in a four-storey tenement in Park Avenue.
A man was taken to hospital by ambulance.
The spokeswoman said: “Three appliances from Kingsway East and Blackness Road received a call out to the fire in a flat in Park Avenue at 3.15pm.
“Firefighters using breathing apparatus are currently checking the entire building for anyone who may be inside.”
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said the road is currently closed between Baldovan Terrace and Baxter Park Terrace, Dundee.
She added: “Police Scotland are advising members of the public to avoid this area.”
