The Burning (1981)
starring Brian Matthews, Brian Backer, Larry Joshua, Jason Alexander (film debut), Fisher Stevens (film debut), Holly Hunter (film debut)
Wikipedia summary excerpts:
In a summer camp named "Camp Blackfoot", a group of boys are planning to pull a prank on the weird, alcoholic, masochistic caretaker, Cropsy, during the middle of the night. They sneak into his cabin and set a rotting skull on fire, only to have Cropsy wake up and accidentally knock the skull onto his gas tank, causing flames to spread all over the cabin. The horrified boys then watch as Cropsy, engulfed in flames, stumbles out and falls down a ravine into a river, putting out the flames. Five years later, Cropsy is released from hospital, wearing a heavy coat, sunglasses and hat to hide his deformities. Out of rage, he murders a female prostitute. He then sets out back to the camp where he was burned.
EDIT: Here's the scene you're describing:

Sounds like the opening scene of Sleepaway Camp.
