Scorched hardwood floor

Help! Electric heater tipped over and scorched some boards on hardwood floor. I caught it before it went too deep, but have no idea how to remove the scorch. Your advice welcome!

You probably can't do it without refinishing the floor. If it's just the floor finish that got scorched, you're lucky. You can scrape or sand it, then do a touch-up patch of the floor finish. If the wood is scorched, you'll either have to sand, scrape or bleach the wood - the last being the most difficult to control and the least likely to give results that will blend in with the rest of the floor.

Another alternative for the OP is replacement of the scorched boards.
