These look like a small steel sided garden shed sitting in a home's backyard. The owner fills it with split logs every morning although there are some which use wood pellets and have a powered stoker. The fire heats water circulating between the boiler and the home. The water runs through a heating coil inserted in the home's gas/propane/oil furnace with controls modified such that the water coil from the backyard boiler is the primary heat source. If the home is unoccupied and the boiler exhausts all its loaded fuel, the home automatically reverts to the expensive fuel source and remains warm.
I have a brother-in-law with such a system. His boiler provides primary heat to his domestic hot water heater too. His plumbing and cotrol system is mind boggling in its complexity, and this is what I studied in college!
