Firefighters are fighting the huge wildfire next to a main road.

Temperatures also reached a high of 41'C in North Italy.


WHAT IS HAPPENING IN CATALONIA?


In Catalonia, over 10,000 acres of land are on fire, with many firefighters attempting to control the blaze.

Around 30 people have currently been evacuated, which could massively increase as officials say the blaze will spread to around 20,000 acres if not a lot more.

Along with the evacuations, only 5 roads have been closed, again, this will increase over the coming days.


France has also had the hottest temperature recorded ever, as an impressive 44.3'C.


Unfortunately, the extreme heat caused one man to sadly pass away at the age of 72, however, he was also homeless.

He was found at Milan's main train station.

Officials say the heat played a large factor in his death.

The last major heatwave that came close to this was in 2003 as around 15,000 people died in just France alone.


how are you coping with the heatwave?
