Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
it is possible for the fluid to have dampness[water] in the system
and wen it got hot,,the water steamed causing a vapor lock..
it would be a good idea to flush the system with new dot fluid
that is why it started back working after it cooled

when this happened you pushed down on the clutch pedal and did the clutch disengage off the flywheel and stay disengaged when you then left off the clutch pedal or it would not disengage when you pushed on the clutch pedal ?
i agree with you
if the clutch did not reengage on the flywheel when your foot was left off of the clutch pedal then the slave or the master is usually the issue unless there is a throw out being issue or pressure plate as if the bearing is sticking on the input shaft it can keep the disc off the flywheel
if this is operating fine now after the tow home then i would change the slave cylinder and the brake fluid in the clutch system and see if it acts up again if it dopes and the throw out bearing is not binding at all then replace the clutch master
there is no check valve in these master cylinders

Put a clutch slave and clutch master cyl on it. Bleed it out good. That will fix it or prevent the intermittent problem from happening again.
