They are not 100% fireproof but are made of steel and marine plywood, so they are very fire-resistant. However, as we all know, anything will burn if subjected to enough extreme heat.

How long does a container typically last?

Many types of containers are available, and each one is built to withstand the rigours of worldwide shipping for a long time. They are very tough and secure as a result. Used containers generally have been in international operation for more than ten years. It is not unreasonable to expect a storage container to function for over ten additional years if your application and location are appropriate and if reasonable care and maintenance are provided. A new container will have travelled from its country of origin and should last over 30 years as a storage container with appropriate care and maintenance.
