Volunteer firefighters have saved several houses from a nearby fire overnight after a fire "totally destroyed" a caravan just north of the CBD.
Acting Sergeant Shane Pettingill of the Stawell police station said the fire broke just after 8pm.
"A caravan parked in the rear yard of a Dalton St address was engulfed by fire," Act Sgt Pettingill said.
"CFA attended with three units and about 12 members and extinguished the fire. The caravan was totally destroyed by the fire.
"One occupant, not in caravan at time, suffered minor smoke inhalation and mild burn to hand attempting to put fire out, and was treated at the scene by paramedics."
Earlier in the day, a Nhill man was intercepted by Stawell police just before midday.
"At 11.15am, Stawell Divisional van members intercepted a gold Kia Rio sedan on Longfield St Stawell," Act Sgt Pettingill added.
"A 52-year-old male driver from Nhill found to be unlicensed. His vehicle was impounded, and the man was released to appear at Stawell Magistrates Court at a later date."
