Will not last as long as steel, but could be serviceable for a long time.

It all depends on the thickness, whether it is reinforced, how hot your fires are and how often you use it.

If you burn hardwood pallets and can't get within 15 feet of the fir pit, it won't last too long.

Since you have it, and its free, why not spend some time digging it in. - If it breaks up in a few years, it will be easier to get rid of.

Concrete takes heat well, but when exposed to direct flame it spalls, sometimes explosively.
