The best on-line archive providers take security very seriously. The risk I would guess is more likely during the file transfer stage. This could be done via secure ftp or similar to minimise that risk. The file could be encrypted and compressed as perhaps a .rar file with password protection.

Fire is the main reason for external storage. Locally I use external hard drives for backups - I suppose I could build a suitable safe storage area somewhere in our garden to keep them in.
