I fertilized my lawn last weekend, watered immediately after and early the next morning. The next few days were quite hot though 90 deg to 100 deg. Now certain parts of my lawn are burnt. What do I need to do to fix this?....Extra h2o?

Yes, extra water to help flood the excess fertilizer out. As long as the roots were not damaged you'll see new grass blades emerging in a few week. If the roots died, you'll have to rake them out and reseed. Hope it grees up soon!
