Fear of fire in trees

my 6 yr old has a fear of going outside.
he says the trees are on fire , when they obviously are not.
(any tree - regardless of its colour)
when i do manage to give him some confidence to play outside , all of his
attention and eyes are on the trees , not giving his full attention to our game of football or what ever we are doing.
Recently at my sons school there was some small burning of bush on a near by property,now, the kids did not actually see any fire there was just a little smoke in the play area , which i can only assume is the cause of this fear. if anyone has had any similar experiences or advice i am very thankfull.
the above has also extended to indoor plants / shrubs also.
