Welcome to the forums.

Haven't given us much to work with here.

Do you have oil ?
If you had run out of oil and gotten oil.... was the burner bled ?
Have you tried pushing the reset button on the burner ONCE ?

Make and model is helpful.
Pictures are also very helpful... How-to-insert-pictures

You say you have an oil furnace. If the fan on the burner is spinning that means the motor is working. You may not be getting ignition which means no fire. If that is what's happening then your safety will shut the burner off after so many seconds. If that is happening you can try to reset Once as PJ mentioned and if it doesn't light you either have an oil problem or an ignition problem and more info will be needed.

Hope this helps a little.
