Most likely the issue is a faulty cooling fan relay, and yes, if it continues to run it will drain the battery, In the fuse relay center locate the relay for the cooling fan or the fuse for the cooling fan and TEMPORARILY remove it until the fan completely stops then put it back. This should stop the fan until you are ready to use the car again, get it repaired as soon as possible. Please Rate my answer, if you have further questions I will answer them, as well, until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
