Difference between la lumbre and el fuego

Why is it ‘hacer la lumbre en la cocina', then later ‘hacer el fuego'? Is it because, the second time, we are more focused on actually getting a fire going, and the first time we're thinking about the type of fire?

Hola Martin

Lumbre and fuego are synonyms. Both are correct.

I added the also correct option at the end using "hacer la lumbre" so you can use one or the other.
