Is It Safe To Burn Painted Wood?

I'm believe I know the answer to my own qusetion but I want to get you guys' opinion.I grew up being told NEVER burn any painted wood due to the fumes emitted.I have burned a little while camping in the past but I now have a barrel full of it after cutting up some old deck railing.There are some 2x4s & thin wooden mobile home skirting that was painted 15+ years ago with outdoor water base paint.So....

The "fumes" were probably from the lead based paint used back in the dark ages when you were growing up...... It should be fine to burn any wood painted with water based latex paints.

I have even seen some guys burning painted wood when they were doing a barbecue on that fire. Not what I would do, but that was a plastic-based paint, without lead...

I would say keep up wind and as long as it isn't the treated lumber it is good to go for what little paint is on it.

This is what I found on the web, but I'd burn the shit anyway.

It is generally an unsafe practice to burn either treated or painted wood. Often the paint or other treatment found on the wood will release chemical toxins unsafe for humans and the environment when burned.
