JACKSONVILLE — Two women are being treated for injuries suffered in a shooting and fire at a Jacksonville motel.

Police say the incident took place early Friday at a Motel 6 near Interstate 95 in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Melissa Bejuda told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1546i3G ) both women are in their 20s.

Police say they believe the fire was deliberately set, but they did not release a motive. It was not clear whether the women rented a room at the motel or if they knew the suspect.

Authorities are searching for a 2002, four-door, dark forest green Buick.

Bejuda says the driver should be considered armed and dangerous.

No further details were immediately available.
