2001 Grand Cherokee Jeep ingnition lock

We have a 2001 Grand Cherokee Jeep which has locked the ingnition system.  We stopped the vehicle and the steering wheel did not lock at first.  After dinner in an attempt to leave we put the key in the ignition and it would not turn.  After some force the steering wheel finally locked.  Now however the ignition will not turn.  The auto transmission shifter will not move and adjusting the steering wheel to attempt to turn the key does not work.  Is there a fuse which could be the problem?
