The fire at Forest Hill Exxon, at 2000 Rock Spring Road, was reported at 11:19 p.m., according to a notice of investigation from the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, which said the building was closed at the time.
On its Facebook page, the Bel Air VFC posted: "A dirt bike crashed into the building, catching fire and the fire then extended inside. Damage is estimated at $50,000. The fire was placed under control in less than 5 minutes. There were no injuries."
According to the Fire Marshal's Office, in addition to the $50,000 in damages to the structure, there was an additional $5,000 damage to the contents.
