Massive forest fires have broken out in several parts of Mizoram, damaging vast tracts of land and vegetation, forcing chief minister Zoramthanga to seek Central help, an official of the state disaster management and rehabilitation department said on Sunday.

No human casualty has, however, been reported so far but detailed reports are yet to come in from the affected districts, the official said.

Zoramthanga has requested Indian Air Force (IAF) for help and the latter is deploying two helicopters to douse the blaze at Lunglei and surrounding areas, the defence ministry said.
