We know that nylon is a thermoplastic. . Hope you have seen  a plastic burning. It can easily catch fire. It's really amazing to see it burning even without fire( even after getting a little heat) .Let me tell u that the nylon too has the same property like this. That means it can also catch fire easily. It too even burns in the absence of fire( i mean only little heat is enough). Hope you have seen plastic when burnt leaving a drop drop like liquid but melts soon (this is really hot and can cause danger) , the same happens here too.We can observe orange colour on the tip. While burning it produces white smoke as usual and smells like that of produced when vegetable, shrubs, other organic things get burned
