My Natural Gas Hot Water heater is located in a closet.

I want to paint the floor of the closet.

Should I extinquish the pilot light or should I just make sure I have small fan running in the area?

To be safe you should turn the pilot light out until the paint is dry and run a fan before you light it to be sure no fumes are left in the area.

Use latex paint - you won't have a problem - it isn't flammable...

What MR.Paint said is true,latex will not and cannot ignite.
If you using oil based yes shut it down to be on the safe side.
