Ryan Richard Merencilla, the very first thing I would suggest is that you clean your iPhone. Use this as your guide It was written for a 3G but still will show you how and what to clean. Use these guides to disassemble your phone. After you cleaned your phone very well, change your battery. NO matter what, I always change the battery after any water damage. Inspect your iPhone for any charring on the logic board as well as charred solder connections, SMD components and IC's. If you find anything that looks like it may be damaged, let us know. Otherwise reassemble your phone and see what you get.

If it smoked when you were charging it, you may have fried your logic board.

Mark is very likely right, but at this point there is no harm in going into your phone and confirming that it's the logic board and maybe not some smaller part. Check out our guide here to remove your logic board and inspect it.
