Water heater ?

Tried to light my water heater on LP for the first time and after a bit when it started it had flames coming out of the vented tube in the center of the pic!! As you see it melted a bit of the yellow tag. I blew it out and shut it down. Not sure how it happens when igniter is in tube ? Don't really want to fire it up again till I know what happened. Any input would help. Forgot pic. Next post


Thanks.

Bet you have a critters nest inside, either a wasp nest or even a spiders web in the burner tube.
