Te flame symbol on the T-stat is just telling you that the T-stat is calling for heat.
What you need to do is go to the furnace and see if there is a blinking light. If there is count the blinks and look for a blink code list on the wiring diagram.(Usually found on the main panel.)
After you have done that, disconnect power to the unit, and then reconnect after a few minutes. This will reset any auto switches if they are tripped.
Chances are the problem will occur again even if the furnace does fire back up, but it "may" get you through the night until you can either diagnose the problem or get a service tech in.
Ideally, have someone else turn the power back on, and the thermostat, while you are watching the furnace to see exactly what is happening.
If it does not operate properly at that time, let me know exactly what it is/is not doing and we can go from there.

Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

SOURCE: What would cause a furnace
You could have plugged orfices in the line coming out of the gas valve. Next you could have a plugged gas regulator.The only way your going to find this out is to check gas pressure before the gas valve during a call for heat and then check it after the gas valve during a call for heat you could have a bad gas valve. Try this let me know what you find Thanks and please leave feedback
