Best place to train Firemaking in F2P?

The Grand Exchange is the best place to train firemaking in free to play worlds of OSRS. As it is possible to burn a log just 1 tile away from the bank. Meaning the time spent banking is extremely minimal. Keeping noted logs in your inventory and using them on the banker to un-note an inventory is the most optimal way to do so.
