Steel safe, fire and papers

Hi, guys,

(First, I must apologize in advance for my poor English. It's not my mother tongue.)

My question is:

Could paper documents survive* a fire if they were inside a steel box? Not inside a modern safe (fireproof and all), but a much more antique type, like XV century. The fire is normal, not magic or anything alike.

Thanks for your input!

* The papers must be still readable, by the way.
