Lighting a Paintbooth or getting LIT

Needing to pick out lights for my temp paint booth and want to use 4' shop lights and a friend said it may ignite the paint fumes.
I've looked through most of the forum threads and did'nt really see any specific information on fluorescent lighting having an explosion potential. In fact I've seen many booths with this type of lighting. I know they actually make explosion proof fixtures but I've never seen them in a fluorescent type.
What is the risk of using these lights inside a temporary plastic paint booth with a positive pressure system?
