You have a timing chain in this vehicle. It would make a metalic sound if broken and most likely cause the engine to freeze up because it would drop against the crank pulley and get tangled.
A fuse wouldn't cause the noise. Is the noise coming from under the hood? Have you checked to see if there is spark and fuel to the engine? How many miles are on the vehicle?
Here is a picture of the timing chain
