This goes back to the second theory of thermodynamics....Matter is not created or destroyed...only altered. In this case the wood is altered into fire and the fire produces heat.

### Why all energy converted to heat energy?

All kinetic energy gets converted to heat because of friction. All light energy gets converted to heat because of absorbtion. All electrical energy gets converted to heat because of resistance. Potential and chemical energy are stored forms of energy, that will turn into heat-, kinetic- and light energy when used. So in the end there will only be heat energy.
