Default 1992 Lexus SC400 smoke coming into cab??

Alright,going to explain every little detail bc this issue really has me worried. I was about to head to work,checked all my fluids & all read full. Started it up & let it idle to running condition before I left. Shifted into gear normally & drove normally. When i was going down the highway(cruising at 60mph) i noticed my airbag light was flashing on & off rapidly & then started to smell something hot. Almost like ATF was burning,then i looked down at the floor to see smoke roll out of the carpet. Immediately pulled over & shut off the car. Engine didnt overheat,checked under car to see if there was any ATF leaking & found none. Had it towed home,checked the fluid levels again & all were still full. However,the ATF looked & smelled like it was being burned & was unbearably hot to the touch. I wouldnt even begin to know whats going on,if anyone knows what the cause could be,please lmk. Any opinions will help!! Thanks

Were you working on the car prior to driving?

You said you checked fluids levels. Why were you checking levels?
