In brief: Ice

Apply ice or cold as quickly as possible.
Then evaluate for the need to be seen.

You should get a good physician evaluation. If the burn is significant you could end up with infection, contractures, and other damage.

In brief: Cold water

Running under cold water is likely best first step--covering with topical ointment such as neosporin and xeroform to will then help pain.
