Spain on Monday (July 18) was facing the eighth and last day of more than week-long heatwave which caused more than 510 heat-related deaths, according to estimates from the Carlos III Health Institute.

Almost the entire country faces an extreme fire risk, with fires burning thousands of hectares in Galicia, Castille and Leon, Catalonia, Extremadura and Andalusia.
