You can try my idea either from the get-go or after you make the fix (but don't like it.)
You can cover it up with furniture or a rug or a plant or something.
My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: If it's in the middle of the floor where you walk, there are runners with a 'rubber backing'. K-Mart sells them in 3' and 5' lengths. Or, you can have the 1 plank/strip replaced. Usually, a strip/plank is 'stolen' from a closet or under a counter or somewhere 'inconspicious'. It may not exacly match but your burn is gone. (It's good to do this too if you end up refinishe the WHOLE floor.)
