The visitors got off to a great star when David Arturo Ferreira scored past Fire keeper Andrew Dykstra but his goal was cancelled out by former Fulham star Brian McBride who netted five minutes prior to half-time.
The point enabled the Fire to move to 3rd on the Eastern Conference table whilst Dallas remained 7th on the Western standings.
