No Damage Should Result From This If You Allow The Car To Cool Down On Its Own, Although It Would Have Been Best To Let The Fan Run Until It Shut Off. But Sounds Like You Are OK.

The radiator fan is designed to run continuously while the engine is running so that the temperature of the coolant can be lowered. The coolant is continuously run through the engine, collecting engine heat and dispersing it over the radiator fins; while the fan blows the fins and cooling off the coolant before recirculating back through the engine in a continuous cycle.

Where is the cooling system pressure release valve on a 2004 jeep wrangler?

Cooling system pressure should only be VERY (!) carefully released by giving the radiator cap a quarter-turn, but first cover the cap with a heavy cloth cloth or wear leather gloves since the coolant temperature will be over boiling. There is no separate pressure relief valve. Remember too to only add water to an overheated engine while the engine is running. Never add cold water to a hot engine without the engine running as doing so can crack the block.
