If it was ran dry then it is likely that the fuel pump fried itself due to no fuel, as the pump uses the fuel as a coolant so you never run a vehicle that has an electric fuel pump under a 1/4 tank. Have someone turn the key to the on position while you listen at fuel filler as try to hear a slight buzzing sound for just a few seconds then it stops, if you hear it then the fuel pump is running, if not then you can try"shocking" the pump by banging on the fuel tank while someone cranks the engine, if it does start don't shut it off, drive it to where you are going to have the fuel pump replaced because it most likely won't start again.

s a fuel shut off relay under the hood. There is a small black box just above the fuse box. The relay on the bottom left is the shut off relay.
