    back there are the exhaust vents so using the vacuum could "aspire it".
    Play with the gravity and it will come out.
    Or get some tools from ifixit.com, open it up and remove the bug.

    A fire starts?

    A FIRE STARTS?

    LOL

    P.S. Did it occur to you that if the bug fell in, it could like ya know... fall out? Turn your laptop upside down and shake!

    I would give it a shot and start shaking it. Better than letting the bug inside your computer decay.

    When I went to stay at my cousins' flat in Singapore with my old MacBook Pro, a few ants crawled inside the vents and were never seen again. Didn't cause any problems and certainly didn't catch fire, and the old design gets a lot hotter than these new ones.

    Relax! ;)

    I've seen dozens of dead bugs in my PCs. Don't worry about it.
