    A neutral on that circuit has opened and power is going through a loat to make neutral live, Unplug everything on that circuit, turn off all lights, this should remove the voltage off the neutral.
    Then I would turn off THAT breaker and see what recepticles and lights went out, check those boxes, could be last good or first bad receptacle.
