Hilchos Shabbos : Preparing a fire Before Shabbos

The Laws Governing the Preparation of Fire before the Onset of Shabbos, 3 Seifim: It is forbidden to make a large fire – a medurah – using wood as fuel close to nightfall [on Friday] unless the fire catches hold to the extent that the flame burns on its own accord without the assistance of other wood (I.e., flaming wood from an outside source.) If [only] one log is [burning], the fire must take hold of the majority of its circumference and its width. If it is not kindled as such (like above) it is forbidden to make use of it on Shabbat. This is a decree, lest one stir [the wood] on Shabbos, moving [the pieces of] wood until the flame ascends on its own accord. If, however, [the wood] was kindled to the extent described [in the previous subsection] while it was still day, a person may warm himself by [that fire] and use its light, regardless of whether [the wood] was [burning] on the ground or on a holder for fire. And even substances that are forbidden to be used as wicks for [the Shabbos] lights.

רנ״ה


הכנת האש קודם הכנסת שבת ובו ג סעיפים:


אין עושין מדורה מעצים סמוך לחשיכה עד שיצית בהם האור בענין שתהא השלהבת עולה מאליה בלי סיוע עצים אחרים ואם הוא עץ יחידי צריך שיאחוז האור ברוב עביו וברוב הקיפו ואם לא הודלקה כל כך אסור ליהנות בה בשבת גזירה שמא יחתה בה ויניד העצים כדי שתעלה השלהבת וכשהודלקה כשיעור יכול להתחמם כנגדה בשבת ולהשתמש לאורה בין אם הוא על גבי קרקע או על גבי המנורה ואפי' הוא מדברים שאין עושים מהם פתילה לשבת:


י"א שבפחמין אפי' לא אחז בהם האור אלא כל שהוא שרי מפני שהם דולקים והולכים:


מדורה של זפת ושל גפרית ושל קש וגבבא אפילו לא אחז בהם אלא כל שהוא שרי וכן מדורה של קנים ושל גרעיני תמרים כשהם מפוזרים אבל אם הקנים אגודות והגרעיני' בסל צריכים שיצית בהם האור עד שתהא שלהבת עולה מאליה ויש אומרים בהיפך:
