I suppose that, given the context in which he speaks this line, Montag probably means that they should not have been burning books.  Instead, they should have been burning (probably figuratively) society.He says this line after he has burned down his own house.  He says it to Captain Beatty after Beatty has been taunting him about being a snob.  Right after he says it, he kills Beatty by burning him.  This, to me, implies that the right kind of burning is when you burn someone or something like Beatty that is part of the repressive society.
