List Rules Can be anything you'd have in your house that you would want to quickly grab before you lost EVERYTHING.

Think fast, hotshot - your house is burning down. You know that everything left behind is going to be burned to a crisp, and you've only got a few minutes at best to grab what you can get out. What do you reach for? When you really think about it, your most important possessions start to come to the forefront. What would you instinctively grab on your way out of the flaming death trap that was once your home?

This list is less trying to make a value judgment and more trying to rank the objects most people would save in the event of a house fire - what you choose is up to you. Is your laptop truly that valuable (if so, should you consider putting your data in the cloud)? How about those irreplaceable photos from the days before digital? That award you earned for a job well done? Your college degree? When you get that house burning down question, what's your answer going to be? It's always tough to really break down what possessions you just can't go on without, but that's what this list is for!

So vote up what you would grab in a fire, or add any important possessions you know you'd reach for when the flames start burning. Can you answer if someone asked, "what would you grab in a fire?" Think about what you'd grab in a fire and cast your votes below!
