Well, my FiL's new neighbor moved in and started burning trash.  He set his 
backyard on fire and it crept into the woods before he noticed 
(duh!).  After paying for the fire dept to come out, he bought a 200 gallon 
oil tank, cut out a door and drilled some vent holes.  Don't know what he's 
doing for ash removal but he seems to like it.

Burning painted wood is a health-hazard, how much I'm not sure; depends on 
what the paint was, I'd say..  Old Amish milk paint is probably fine to 
snort, 20-year guarantee weatherbeater probably would kill you quicker than 
pressure-treated wood.
