When you burn a log, it burns energy very quickly and when cellular respiration happens, it burns energy slowly. Cellular respiration usually takes place in the mitochondrion of a living cell while burning of a log is an exothermic reaction that is caused by the burning of a hydrocarbon in the presence of oxygen.
