Driving on highwaysmell something burning ----all of a sudden brake pedal goes soft pedal almost to floor. Stopped on a grade, had to put on emer. Brake. Then I could not release emer. Brake. So I put car in drive then reverse then drive again. I did not force it to move. But when I did get it off I got full pedal back? And it still a full pedal. No brake fluid of any kind on ground. Maybe you can explain if not thanks anyway

You probably have a brake dragging for some reason that overheated severely and boiled the fluid. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be checked out ASAP.
