Can you set "the air" on fire?

I remember watching the walking dead, the last episode of series 1 and the scientist said that he could set the air on fire?

Does oxygen go on fire at a certain level? Or was that all just made up for the show?

Thanks.

If you get it hot enough, the nitrogen will oxidize.

But when people make a statement like this they are really talking about something like a fuel/air bomb, where you fill the air with a flamable vapor and light it off.
