plymouth voyager brakes burned out

My plymouth voyager threw me a curve today.
First she dragged as if the emergency brake was engaged--it wasn't. Then there was smoke from the front left wheel area at stop, and the smell as well. Next the brakes required pumping to get usage.
No loss of brake fluid based on reservoir. No pulling to one side, even though only one side apparently hot. No drippings of any sort on driveway. That's all I've got for now.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Rick

Likely a stuck brake caliper or bad brake hose.

Change both brake hoses, calipers, and friction in the front (the back should also be checked as well), rebleed and tell us what you've got.
