I wouldn't stress too much about it even if it was a nasty type of paint. Just try and stay out of the smoke, usually goes straight up anyway. If you where using it everyday in a home heater, you might want to reconsider :lol:

i never use any kind of painted or treated wood. it all stinks and doesn't make for a very pleasant camp.

Personally I wouldn't use it. The building only needs to be 30yo to have lead paint. Plus alot of building timber is also treated for the muchies.
