Considering the fact that it appears to be based on Ps 104.4 [103.4 LXX] and that there is a parallelism between the two stichs, I would rather doubt that.
ὁ ποιῶν τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ πνεύματακαὶ τοὺς λειτουργοὺς αὐτοῦ πῦρφλέγον.
hO POIWN TOUS AGGELOUS AUTOU PNEUMATA KAI TOUS LEITOURGOUS AUTOU PUR FLEGON.
… search for truth, hear truth,
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth,
defend the truth till death.
- Jan Hus

Subject: [B-Greek] PNEUMA and PYR in Matthew 3:11
I have long been under the impression that the phrase EN HAGIOS PNEUMA KAI PYR ( "with the holy spirit and fire" ) is to be understood to mean that the spirit and fire are one and the same. I've lately come across a few articles online where the claim has been made that the text in question indicates that there are two different baptisms in view - one a baptism with spirit, the other with fire. Can someone help me out wiht this?
