Feu is uncountable, hence the partitive "du".
We light a cigarette with a flame produced by a match or a lighter and to us it is "some fire".
"Un feu" = a fire (for firemen to take care of, or the fire you make in your chimney)
"Une lumière" = a natural or electric light/lightning; + figurative "bright spirit"
