I’m sure it was. The use of fire-resistant walls was certainly common in industrial building construction in the last century, particularly in “mill” construction which used lots of wood framing and flooring. Firewalls were common in streetcar barns, where fires could (and did) destroy many wood-bodied cars.

It’s hard to imagine IT people in the 1990’s creating the term out of whole cloth.
