The OP was asking specifically if it was okay to drive 6 miles home after this incident happened. He said that he was driving when he saw warning lights. That means the serpentine belt let go while the engine was running. If shredded pieces of belt and wire are inside his block he absolutely needs to avoid driving it until he can be 100% sure.
