Actually the prohibition on making a fire on the Sabbath is a Commandment

I don't think so. The committee came up with "fire = work". At least I didn't find a reference to fire as work in Leviticus or Deuteronomy.

Fire clearly relates to work as well

Exodus 35:1-3 1. Moses called the whole community of the children of Israel to assemble, and he said to them: "These are the things that the Lord commanded to make. 2. Six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have sanctity, a day of complete rest to the Lord; whoever performs work thereon [on this day] shall be put to death. 3. You shall not kindle fire in any of your dwelling places on the Sabbath day."

Exd 35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.
