Cut Nerve: It sounds like you cut a nerve in your finger. I would see a hand surgeon this week for possible surgical repair.

Maybe nerve injury: It is possible that you injured a digital nerve (that supplies sensation to the little finger.) repair is not an emergency, so i would wait for a week to 10 days to see if the feeling returns (the nerve may just be bruised but not cut.) if not, you should see a hand surgeon and have the nerve repaired by 3 weeks after the injury.

Pinky finger: Depending on how you had your hand it may be possible that you may have irritated one of the digital nerves which maybe what's giving you that feeling of your hand being on fire and burning. In any event seeing an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and x-rays is probably your best bet to rule out the words possibility of a fracture
