Is pressure treated wood toxic?

This is an alternative wood-treatment chemical that contains no arsenic, chromium, or any other chemical considered toxic by the EPA. However, ACQ contains more copper than CCA, and some copper will leach from ACQ-treated lumber as it does from CCA-treated lumber.

In respect to this, can you burn treated wood in a fire pit?

OTTAWA, March 16, 2016 /CNW/ - When the weather is cool, it's nice to light up a fire to keep warm. Be careful though, that you don't throw pressure treated wood on the fire. Burning pressure treated wood in your fireplace, or even outside in your fire pit, can release toxic chemicals that are dangerous to your health.
