A 66-year-old Perth woman tried to drug her son and husband before setting their house on fire, police allege.

Officers arrived the Ballajura blaze on November 11 after the son, 45, found his way out of the house, while it is believed the woman and her 79-year-old husband were rescued by neighbours. All three suffered minor burns and smoke inhalation.

The woman has been charged with attempting to unlawfully kill the pair and was due to face Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday.
