On November 25, 2006, Narges and her friends suffered severe burns at an elementary school in Shiraz, central Iran, when a portable heater they were using to keep warm fell on the ground and a fire spread in the class. The students only exit route had been blocked by the fire.

Maryam Norouzi, Leila Kohan, Parisa Taheri, Samaneh Azimi Mohammad Hassan Shirouyeh, Reza Haghighi and Narges Haidari were the eight-year-old students who were victims of this tragedy. After one or two surgeries, the condition of some of the children has improved. Narges, however, continues to suffer the consequences of this incident caused by negligence of the school authorities and lack of appropriate funding for schools in Iran.
