If' the fame is coming out of the burner area, I'd say call for service soon!

This is not a good sign.

It can be a number of things cause this.

Big Flames

There could be several reasons for this to happen. Most of them are beyond the average homeowner's knowledge & tools to test with & repair. I suggest you call a local service company to have a look.

Thumbs down

Good advice. You have a problem venting or a cracked heat exchanger.
Make the call.

This goes above a mere suggestion to call a service tech. Anytime flame is coming out of heat exchanger it means shut it off and DO NOT USE.
Until a service tech has checked it.
