Mizoram Civil Secretariat building gutted in major fire outbreak

Aizawl, 18 April : A fire broke out in Civil Secretariat building, gutting properties worth around Rs 100 lakh, police said today.

The blaze broke out in three departments – Information and Communication Technology, the Revenue and Land Settlement and the Higher and Technical Education departments housed in Mizoram’s Civil Secretariat Annexe-I building last night, a senior police official said.

The flames gutted around Rs 100 lakh worth of government properties before firemen could douse it, Aizawl District SP Lalhuliana Fanai told newsmen.

However, there was no report of injury or casualty in the incident.

Fanai said that though the cause of the fire was yet to be ascertained, electric short circuit could be the reason for the accident.

A probe has been launched in this connection. The building, located at Treasury Square, adjoining Raj Bhavan, houses small secretariat offices.

Fortunately, the data centre (e-governance room) remained unscathed.
