Halacha - hilchot iom tov
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: If on iom tov a goy lights up a candle and give to a jew to light up fire to cook. Is it considered that the jew made the fire?
Answer: It is a problem to derive benefit from work that a goy does for a Jew on Shabbos or Yom Tov. However, if he lit the candle for his own use, you would be allowed to use it afterwards to light your stove.
