First check the battery to make sure it has a full charge and then check the solenoid cause if there is fire coming from the solenoid to the starter have the starter tested. if the car will take a jump before you do all of this take the positive side of the battery off and if the car dies its your alternator

Sounds like maybe the starter's has gone bad, that would explaine the grinding but not the hazards

Won't turn over


your starter is shot most likely. the noise is the drive gear at the end of the starter not throwing far enough onto the flywheel. Dont keep starting like this as a new flywheeel will be v expensive if damaged! Have your battery checked out too as a limp battery will not produce the power that the solenoid needs to throw that gear out properly and a new starter will fail too.
Pls rate me if this helps.
