Hello, I have been playing creative mode on minecraft version 1.8. I have been attempting to create a portal to the nether(as I have yet to go there) but whenever I do so it seems to start a fire and I'm forced to destroy the block before my building, in which the obsidian outline stand, will burn down. I wanted to know whether this is a problem with the game or if I'm just not creating it correctly. I would be very thankful to anyone who could solve my delima.

The gap in the portal needs to be 3 high and 2 wide, A complete circuit of 14 blocks.

you then need to strike middle block at the bottom where there is a gap with  :Flint and Steel:

You can also leave the corner blocks out.

For everyone who didn't know, you don't need the top and bottom corners so you only need 10 obsidian. From how you described it, are you using black wool to make it? Obsidian doesn't burn down...

you said you have to put it out before your building burns down... is it maybe too close to your walls? try building one outside maybe?

This thread just made me face palm so hard. I understand if your new to the game but why not look it up on the minecraft wiki?
