A flashing temp light means either low coolant or intake fan not working. A solid light indicates an overheat condition. Based on "green stuff on the ground", I'd say it was indicating low coolant. Likely either a ruptured hose or a blown water pump. Coolant steam has a pretty distinctive smell - not at all like oil smoke.
