A heat wave baking southeastern Europe sent temperatures rocketing to 113 degrees in some places, killing at least 25 people, melting roads in Turkey and driving hundreds to seek medical help. Firefighters battled hundreds of blazes sparked by arid conditions in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Romania. In Turkey, the heat killed 5,200 chickens and led camel drivers to wet down their animals to cool them.

Hundreds of wildfires burned across southern Europe, which remained in the grip of a heat wave that has driven temperatures as high as 120 degrees. The sizzling weather accompanied the worst drought to strike the Balkans in 50 years, which has already caused record crop losses since it began in late May. Ambulances patrolled the streets in southern Romanian cities to pick up people who had fainted in the 106-degree heat.
