WHAT'S CAN THIS SMELL BE?

1998 Honda Accord • 230,700 miles

I have a 98 honda accord ex 4 cyl and the a.C doesn't work(needs new air compreser still not fixed yet) I was driving and all of a sudden it was lots of smoke coming from my front driver tire. My car was not running hot and the smell was strong. It kind of smelled like a burning clutch(my car is auto) remember this smell from a pervious car I had. Brake pads are medium. Can you tell me what that might be?

Symptom indicates the brakes must be heating up causing the burning smell. Check the calipers for sticking.
