Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.
Were there any vapors flammable or otherwise in the area of the heater? Was there water on the floor near the front of the tank?
