Did the grinding start when you turned the key (starter) or while it was running (engine)? It could have been your A/C compressor seized up and burnt through a belt.

How many miles are on this engine? The starter did not disengage? Solenoid spring could be broken would soon burn up the starter motor if this were the case.
