The two greatest enemies of MBPs are liquids and heat. You have experienced the latter and I urge you not to use it until you have had it serviced. A inoperative fan will allow excessive heat to build to the point that components start melting creating unpleasant aromas and decreasing the life expectancy of your MBP.
A malfunctioning fan is a SERIOUS problem.
