oops left parking brake on

I have a 94 ford ranger that I drove for about 3 miles tonight with the parking brake on. When I got out I could smell the brakes quite well. Did I seriosly damage my brakes? My parking brake still works but you have to push it all the way down to keep the truck from rolling backwards on an incline. What should I do besides not do it again? Thanks

take it to a shop and have the drums checked for hot spots and check the pad wear! If there is still sufficient pad left on the shoes the have them adjust them. I am assuming this has rear drum brakes.
