The likely site of televison’s The Block 2018 is an old fire station that was contaminated with methamphetamine.

The old fire station in the Auckland suburb of Kingsland had been converted into a 18-room boarding house, but was closed after testing found significant levels of meth contamination. A former tenant said eviction orders were issued to everyone living there in April. The building was then sold to Warner Brothers, the production company behind The Block.
