You hear the fire trucks, see the smoke, yep, your house/apartment is on fire, yes the family is out and safe. You can't do anything to fight the fire but you do have a little time, so you must save.............???

Family and pets. Everything else is irrelevant.
Same.

Regarding inanimate objects however, we have some old school analogue photos, and a few sentimental things. Stuff that can't be replaced. If I had time I would take those too.

As others have said. Family. Then time permitting I guess things like my heirlooms / sentimental stuff depends on the scale of the fire.

I was actually involved in a house fire as a teenager well a mobile home as we were partially living in it as the family home was being rewired and renovated.

It was about 20 years ago there was a coal fire in the mobile home and I remember I had topped up the coal to keep warm through out the night (I was sleeping in the front room as there were only 2 beds).

It was about 2am I could see a bright orange light it was the flue instantly the cupboards near the fireplace were alight, I obviously told my family and they ran out the door. I was out last with my Gibson SG special (which I still have) and a crappy Marshall MG20 amp.

Looking back on it although it was a harrowing experience, I do find it funny I grabbed a guitar and amp.

... So going on past experience it would be guitars and I would also say one of my Gorilla cases where I keep my valuable and rare records.
