deab battery, then hot cable

went out to start the truck and the batteries were dead. tried to jump it off, but the drivers side battery positive side is getting hot. i am afraid of cooking something until i figure out what is causing this. any ideas? short maybe? gpr is not getting hot to the touch either. thanks for any input.

I TOOK THE BATTERIES TO AUTOZONE AND HAD THEM CHARGE THEM FOR A FEW HOURS. ONE WAS FIVE YEARS OLD AND WOULD NOT CHARGE AT ALL, THE OTHER WAS ONLY A YEAR OLD(DURALAST GOLD) WOULD ONLY STAY CHARGED FOR A LITTLE BIT. THEY REPLACE THE NEW ONE AND I BOUGHT ANOTHER GOLD TOP. TRUCK FIRED UP LIKE ITS SUPPOSED TO. BUT I HAVE NOT DROVE IT ANYWHERE YET.

Low voltage will cause cables to get hot. You should be good to go.
