Fireproof storage for an apartment dweller?

I have a lot of paper - journals, art, etc. Fire makes me nervous! Are there any good fireproof/fire resistant storage options for an apartment dweller?

I have a lot of paper history in my apartment - years' worth of journals, artwork I've done for professional purposes, photos, etc. - so I get really nervous when I think of fire taking it all out.
There's the idea of scanning everything and storing the files off-site (an awesome idea but could take ages, and I still want to keep the originals safe). I'd also really like some kind of fireproof or fire resistant storage. However, all the options I've found are tiny lockboxes for a handful of documents or industrial solutions that seem more appropriate for offices.
Does anyone have any fireproof storage suggestions for apartment-dwellers? I'm especially interested in hearing from artists about how they keep their works safe.
