This has never happened before...

I turned the key in the ignition, and the engine started up really nice but seconds later started to sputter and stall and then just died. After trying again, the ignitor just spins and makes noise but the engine does not start at all. Its not the battery or the fuse cause i checked that out...I hope its not anything serious, got any ideas? Oh, if this may be in any way related-i hosed down the engine compartment about 2 days before. I let it dry for a few hours and it started and ran just fine...can water cause any problems to the engine at all?
