Wilde Lake Apartments Evacuated

An apartment building on Green Mountain Circle was evacuated early Tuesday morning.


An apartment building near the 10800 block of Green Mountain Circle was evacuated just after 2 a.m. by fire officials due to initial reports of 3 to 4 inches of standing water on the roof of the building, according to a Howard County Fire Department spokesperson.

About 25 firefighters and paramedics responded to the scene of the Concord House apartment building and worked in the early morning hours to pump the water off the roof, according to the spokesperson.

After the water was removed, it was determined there was no need for a large-scale evacuation. The roof is no longer in danger of collapse, according to fire officials.

American Community Management runs the Concord House Condo Associationand is definitely dealing with an older building that needs a lot of attention like a new roof and elevators. In 3 weeks, work will begin on a new roof (in phases because of cost). This will include the roof over my unit. I arrived 3 1/2 years ago. Leaks in the roof got worse a month ago and did damage all over the building because- faulty drains. My hallway looks like a war zone; cut outs, lights and wires hanging, lumber stacked against the wall... Previous water damage done, American Community left us to fend for ourselves during the worst storm prediction in history. Thiscould have been avoided by hiring someone to overnight with buckets, watervac to keep ahead of leaks. A no brainer.(3rd time in 3 years water damge will be repaired in my apartment) The night of the storm, I was setting out/emptying my own buckets, trash cans until about 1:30am when I was satisfied the water in the hallway encroaching on my place had receded and not increased. Although I slepted through Fire Dept on the roof, our firefighters were put avoidably at risk. I'm on the top floor just below the roof they thought might colapse and no one knocked on my door. We had power and I have a loud doorbell that would have awakened me. I've had a patient/friendly relationship with American Community and want to keep it that way so I'm not sure what my next move is. Very sad the state of my building once a swanky place.
