Possibly something stuck to the exhaust or catalityc converter, look for plastic bags etc melted to the exhaust. If not check to make sure there are noi oil leaks and check the drive belts on the engine.

SOURCE: A smell of burning rubber
A common cause of a smell like that is a coolant leak.Take a close look around the hoses,clamps, frost plugs and the water pump as it has a weep hole that will leek coolant if the seal is breached. Sometimes all you will see is a stain, but no coolant as small leeks boil away with the engines heat.
If a belt was burning it would be very noisy. The timing belt is cogged so slippage is unlikely. It is possible that a foreign object has gotten on the exhaust manifold like a plastic bag. One last thing I can think of is a wire or something touching a hot surface and melting. Good luck.
