Light sources in Minecraft are an important part of the game and the Minecraft Campfire is one of them. Players can use it as a light source and even as a means to cook some food!
Players can make a variety of tools to satisfy their needs in the game and the developers have also introduced many small but effect tools for these purposes. Minecraft is primarily a sand-box adventure game and therefore getting lost in its world is a given for players.

Uses for the Campfire
Sources of Light
Campfires are great sources of light and emit a strong light around the fire. Players can also turn on/off a Campfire using Flint and Steel and Water respectively. However, rain does not extinguish Campfires.
Campfires have a live fire on the top which emits small flame particles and smoke that goes up to the sky above. Players can extend the smoke height by placing a Hay Bale on the top upon which it becomes a Signal Fire.
Campfires can damage any mobs or even the players who get on top of the open flame. The only exceptions are the shulkers, zombified piglins and guardians.
Campfires deal 1 health damage per tick and also sets the player burning for 8 seconds. Soul Campfire also afflicts the burn damage but also does more damage, 2 health points per tick.
Players can place up to four raw food items on the sides of the Campfire. This will make it start cooking. They take approximately 30 seconds to cook completely, which is higher than a Furnace or Smoker.
To harvest Honey and Honeycomb
Players can place a Campfire under a Bee Nest or a Bee Hive to safely harvest honey or Honey combs. The bees will not come out and attack.
To scare away Piglins
Players can set up Soul Campfires to scare away piglins that are not attacking.
