No fire spotted in Nagaland’s Dzukou range; operations to be scaled down: DFO – Times of India

KOHIMA: As no active fire was noticed in Nagaland’s Dzukou range on Sunday, operations will be scaled down but the situation will be constantly monitored, a forest officer said.
A fire erupted in Dzukou range in Kohima district on December 29 last year, damaging flora and fauna over a large area.
“A low-intensity smoke was spotted during aerial surveillance but as it is far from the base camp, operations will be scaled down from tomorrow,” Kohima Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Rajkumar M said.
The situation is completely under control but scaled- down operations will continue, he said.
Eighty personnel and two IAF helicopters are keeping a close watch on the situation, the DFO said.
The extent of damage caused due to the blaze is yet to be ascertained, sources said.
