Was the smell like wood burning? Or plastic smell?
Were you coming down a slope or used the brakes just before the burning smell came?
If so, it could be the brakes. Sometimes, dust in the discs can cause the brakes to be very tight, and cause the burning smell.
Of course, if the smell was burning plastic type, there is something bad - check the electricals. But I suspect the brake thingy. A simple blowing high pressure air at the discs in the front should solve the problem.
In the city, try going down a flyover / bridge where you can liberally use the brakes, and check the hub caps for excessive heat. Take care not to burn your fingers.

I took my vehicle to Service Center - as usual, nothing was found. I saw there was a leak in power window fluid. When told, they put some gel in the joint. They also test everything with some computer software and informed me everything's fine.
