I have a really bad fear of fire - Arsonphobia

I have a really bad fear of fire. Something happened when I was younger, and since then uncontrolled fires have petrified me. Of course everyone has a fear of fire but I burst into tears and I cant use my body properly(I'm shaking too much)when there's a fire drill at my school. Nobody in my form does that apart from me. My school has 4 floors and even if I'm on the ground floor next to an exit I will get really scared. Its probably because of the noise and the fact that someone could burn to death in there. I got shouted at by my pe teacher because I was too slow. That upset me because I couldn't help it. She even made me stop to finish getting ready for pe. That terrified me.
