Couldn't this be translated as "There is a fire in the kitchen"? I can't imagine any one saying it the answer given.

I wrote "there's a fire in the kitchen" and it was accepted. Maybe it's fixed without the contraction too?

I don't know what "there is fire...." is supposed to mean other than "there is A fire..." but shouldn't it be "Hay UN fuego..." though?

There's a big difference between "there is fire" and "there is a fire". The first could mean the gas stove is on, go light your cigar, the other is OMG call the bomberos.

¿Por qué no hay un artículo antes del sustantivo?

Why is there no article before the noun?

This should be "There is first in the stove." No?

"There is fire..." was also accepted. I do know that some spanish words require the prefix while others do not (el almuerzo = "the lunch" or simply "lunch"). And some languages do not require a prefix at all. The exact same word is used to mean " boy", "a boy", or " the boy". Unfortunately, I have not yet mastered this rule.
