Writer's Block: Rescue mission

If someone intentionally set fire to your home and you had ten minutes to get out, would you try to save the arsonist or your belongings?

My belongings, of course--although I would focus on my family and animals first, belongings second. The arsonist can die in the fire--poetic justice for committing an act of aggression. Trying to kill me and destroy my property warrants suitable punishment, I think, and if the arsonist is dumb enough to get caught in the blaze and die, then that is very suitable punishment.

Obviously I would prefer if no one died, but in the case of the perpetrator, you reap what you sow.
