Ballajura: woman (66) allegedly drugged occupants of house before setting fire to it

A 66-year-old woman allegedly attempted to drug two occupants of a Ballajura house before she set fire to the building.

About 6.50pm on November 11, police and Department of Fire and Emergency Services members were called to a house fire on Vista Parade.

A 79-year-old man, 66-year-old woman and 45-year-old man were found with minor burns and smoke inhalation.

Arson squad detectives arrested the 66-year-old after investigations and will allege she attempted to drug the others before lighting the fire.

She is set to appear before the Perth Magistrates Court today.
