Couple of things to try.
1. Check that the battery connections are both clean and tight on the battery.
2. Check water level in the battery is above the plates that you can see in the filler holes.
(Handle the battery with care as the water in the battery has been charged and becone sulphuric acid which will burn your skin. Do not get this in your eyes.)
3. Turn the headlights on then start the vehicle, and if:
a) the lights dim the battery is not connecting properly or faulty, or:
b) the lights stay on full it would the starter motor relay or solenoid (part of the starter motor).

Maybe your starter was stuck out and it kept running with the flywheel until i got hot and start smoking.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your input. Two others have said the same thing and I told my mechanic to check the starter. I will take this to them to read."
