Default What smells like plastic burning.....

....that could be outside of my house?

For the past two days when I leave my house it smells like burning plastic/styrafoam. I have NO idea where the hell it is coming from, and seems to be blowing in from somewhere as it gets stronger when the wind blows.

I been ALL around my house smelling for the problem, but I could not find it. It does not smell like it in the backyard either, mostly the front.

No construction around....very nice neighborhood....dunno wtf it could be.

No. But the smell of crack smoke does have a hint of burning plastic, among other things.
