The penalty is -3, and especially as a burning arm probably still gives you lighting penalties, and possibly penalties for smoke in your eyes, so that might well not be true. Oh, and these penalties are on top of any you take for the pain from the burning damage. And if all this does add up to less than -10, well that makes sense - you can actually see the target, after all.
