Water heater turning off

Hi,
Our gas water heater started to turn itself off after running 10min or so after lighting up. If I light up again immediately after turning off then it runs even shorter around couple of minutes then turns itself off again. I recorded its turning off in the below video (it turns off around 55th second)

Any help appreciated about the possible reason of the turning off.
Also looking at the flames and the small embers on tehe interior walls normal ?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

I'm not the pro here but the make, model and serial number of your water heater would be extremely helpful.

Thnaks for the replies, My water heater is :
Kenmoore , Power miser 6
I believe it is more than 10 years old. I will clean the bottom and see if it helps.
