The Battery could be shorting out internally and that was the reason your Alternator broke. It will happen again to the Rebuilt Alternator if the Battery is not checked or replaced.

When you get the car driveable, take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a Starter Draw test. This can be the short that killed the other Alternator.
