An afternoon of fun turned into horror for one six year old girl in Kansas.

Jayden Beddo and her brother were playing in their backyard when a stranger cut through the alley.

He called Jayden over to the fence, lit a cigarette and then lit her hair.

The little girl was taken to the hospital, where she's now recovering from burns to her head and hands.

Jayden is expected to make a full recovery, but the hair on her head may never grow back.

Police are still looking for the assailant.
