    Will any harm come from burning old wood in my fireplace? When I bought my house the sellers left about a card of wood, and it looks very weathered. The outer pieces look rotten. Is it ok to burn this wood? I can get a pic tonight if needed.

    burn it with a mix. alone it might burn faster, but i can't see any harm by burning it.

    It will go up like a match, I would save it when starting the fire and mix it with a little wetter would.
