The good news

Harry Homeowner installed this CPVC pipe touching the flue pipe of this hot water heater. The fix? Slip some cardboard (yes, it's flammable) between the warm flue pipe and meltable plastic! The good news? The gas was turned off and I recommended repairs by a licensed plumber before re-inspection.
