Kohima, Jan 2: Efforts have been stepped to douse the massive forest fire that had engulfed the picturesque Dzukou valley ranges earlier this week.
A team from the National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF), and four Indian Air Force (IAF) helicopters will be pressed in to help the ground forces in Manipur contain the DzukOo Valley wildfire that started on December 29.
The center has assured all necessary help to the Manipur government to combat the massive blaze that started in Nagaland four days ago and has since spread to its neighbouring state.
According to officials, firefighters from Manipur have been able to partially bring the forest fire under control in the picturesque Dzukou Valley. But, the wildfire on the southern side is yet to be brought under control, they added.
