We use the county burn building at the county fire academy.
The statements above are my own opinions

We prefer using live fire.
The county burn building, flammable liquid pits, drafting pits, etc. are available and we use them a few times a year.
If we can get them and use them safely, we'll use buildings slated for demolition, although PA Dept. of Environmental Resources has made that almost impossible these days (don't let me get started on this...).
For non-structures, we've got sufficient space in a number of locations to burn cars, trucks and things like that on occasion, just to keep in shape.
