Tank rusted out because anode rod depleted because water heater was not maintained according to product manual, and industry standard and water heater was not inspected each 6 months by homeowner.
Rheem makes GE heaters.
Look at label for serial number. 3rd and 4th digit are year of manufacture.
Since this model is no longer manufactured, I suspect that 6-year warranty is expired. So ruptured tank is not covered.
Call homeowner's insurance for deductible coverage for ruptured water damage.
Buy new heater.
Install gas water heater yourself:

you need to replace the upper thermostat, it has the overtemp switch made to it. Also make sure that the thermostat is pushed up tight to the tank with no space or object between them.

There could be blockage in your water heaters venting on the outside of the home. It sound like the high limit switch has been tripped. Try unplugging the tank and plugging it back in. this will reset the tank. if the problem persists you will want to call your provider for service.

Hopefully just the thermocouple. The thermocouple is the small rod right next to the pilot light. The flame on the pilot heats up the thermocouple and keeps the gas valve on. You can replace it yourself. The thermocouple will be connect by a small nut on the underneath side of the valve, and you will have to pull the thermocouple out of the pilot assembly. Not an expensive part, you can get it at any hardware store. Hope this helps you .
