Both sides would be at a disadvantage in defending against attack until they worked out what the enemy was capable of and how to counter it. I don't believe that would last very long though and it would become a matter of willingness to put the resources into countermeasures.
A horde of minor fire spirits would initially cause chaos in a modern army but banning all non-essential flamable materials and providing anti-ignition foam for all fuel storage would reduce it to a manageable problem.
