Background & Objective: Injuries caused by burnt incidents are common in infants, and it is the most common and the third reason of mortalities in this age group. Based on differences in social, environmental, and cultural conditions in communities, investigating risk factors in each region are important. Hence, the present study aims to investigate the related factors to burning of 1-6 years old children.
Materials & Methods: This study is a descriptive, cross-sectional study and its sample includes 350 burned children between 1-6 years old. The data were collected from patients who were admitted to five hospitals. 175 out of all samples were in burnt group and 175 of them were in healthy group. Sampling method in both groups were sequential. To collect data, a questionnaire in three sections of demographic, familial, and environmental questions were conducted. Data has been analyzed with Mann-Whitney-U, Chi-Square, and Fisher Exact test and modeled by Multinomial Logistic Regression in SPSS 16.
Results: Data analysis revealed statistical significant differences between two groups among  individual factors such as age distribution and among familial factors such as mother’s age, father’s education, among environmental factors such as size of the house, number of bedrooms, kitchen format, unavailability of flammable things, washing agents (p=0.001).
Conclusions: Based on the results, most burnings happened when infants were being fed and when all members of family were present. Burnt incidents were proved to happen more in low educated families. So, by effective training courses, risks of more burning events can be decreased and prevented.
