France recorded the highest-ever temperatures on Monday as the country continues to battle wildfires burning in its southwestern region of Gironde.

According to the national meteorological service Meteo France, the town of Cazaux recorded 42.4 degrees Celsius (108.3 degrees Fahrenheit), the hottest it has ever seen since its weather station first opened more than 100 years ago in 1921.
