It will be hard to say without a photo, but it could very well be a fungal infection.

It is a good idea to trim off any growth that is completely dead, or brown, and treat the soil with a HANDFUL of DOLOMITIC LIME and a TABLESPOON of WETTABLE SULFUR per plant. This will condition the soil, and prevent infections during wet seasons.

in the meantime, this article will help you to care for these shrubs: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/burning-bush/burning-bush-care.htm
