What causes a burning sensation in stomach?

Inflammation. Assuming we are talking about your stomach and not your abdomen. Gastritis, stomach ulcers, hunger pangs, reflux.

If this does not relieve the symptoms within 30 minutes or if the burning is recurrent then see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.
