used emergency brake, won't totally disengage, grinding sound front driver wheel on 1995 Ford Taurus

i used my emergency brake, now it won't totally disengage and I have grinding sound in front driver's side wheel. what can I do? don't want cable to brake - think it may be rusted. Car holds back like brake it partially set. what will happen if I continue to drive car in this condition? how will it effect my main brakes? Brakes are difficult to engage to hold car back on hill or stop - grinding.

Agree with greg, saw one that had caught on fire from overheated rear brakes, driving with E brake applied!

poss frt hub bearing is the frt end issue. with brakes engaged it will cause numerous problems incl damage to brake drums. seek an insp and est asap
thank you - will do
would using some WD-40 on the cable do anything temporarily?
