What do we consider a 'dwelling-place' for this purpose? A house? A city/within an eruv?
By this logic, if I were outside a defined 'dwelling-place' on Shabbat (say, out in the wilderness and not on any land owned by a Jew), could I kindle a fire? Or since I am a Jew, does where-ever I am at the time count and as place that I am 'dwelling'?
Edit: I am not referring to the exception of fires in the temple, nor to a case of pikuach nefesh. I am enquiring about lighting a normal fire for preferential purposes in an area arguably not considered a defined 'dwelling-place'.
