What causes burning bush leaves to dry up and turn brown in June - July? My burning bushes are several years old and were doing fine and well taken care of, until Mid June - early July when the leaves started drying up and turning brown like they are dying. They are in a row of five of them, and the first 3 are doing this. What can I do?

It is hard to say for sure as there are any number of issues that can cause decline of these plants. Most likely it is a fungal disease brought about by some type of stress. You could try treating with a fungicide but keep in mind that this may not help and is dependent on the type of fungus, some of which there is no cure for.
