Default Super Urgent Question about 2005 Honda CRV?

So I left my car in a parking garage over night, and I let it sit there 2 days without turning it on. When I went to turn it on, nothing happened so assumed that the battery was dead. I had someone help me jump the car and everything was fine. I followed proto call and let the car sit for about 30 minutes in idle before trying to turn it off. When I tried to turn the car off, I would take the key out, BUT the engine would remain running. The temperature level in the car was rising fast while I tried to figure out how to get the car to shut off. In the end I pulled the engine fuse, and the engine shut off. However, some lights are still on in the dash board. Is it safe for me to leave the car overnight in the parking garage? Can anyone diagnose the problem?

You have a bad ignition switch. Disconnect the battery cables tonight. Get it to a shop and have them check out the ignition switch and replace.

Idling a car that was just jumped is NOT protocol. That puts TREMENDOUS strain on the Alternator. You're asking it to recharge a dead battery at about 700 RPM. That overheats the diodes and windings and greatly shortens the life of the alternator. An alternator needs to run at about 2000 engine RPMS to put out its full output.
