    Preposition for vs during

    There are three sentences:
    The fighting continued for three days.
    After the storm we were without electricity for five days.
    Bake the cake for 40 minutes.

    The question is: will ever a native speaker use preposition during it these sentences, like:
    The fighting continued during three days.
    After the storm we were without electricity during five days.
    Bake the cake during 40 minutes.
