That's what is shutting down your computer. It's running too hot. Perhaps the fan(s) have stopped working. It will continue to do this until the heating problem is resolved.

I researched it a little. seems toshibas are known for getting dirty/clogged inside. shop-vac-ed it and temps came down to around 50C...still some flame symbols...but much cooler. may need to take it apart to clean more thoroughly. I think all else is fixed now. thanks for you help!!!!
