HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Local and federal investigators were at a northwest Houston home Friday night where an explosion sent a woman to the hospital.
The woman was opening a package left at her doorstep in the 2100 block of Seamist Court Friday evening. She had found the shoe-sized box in front of her home about a day ago but didn't decide to open it until around 6:30pm Friday.
The woman was transported to Northwest Memorial Hospital with facial injuries that are not life-threatening.
Officials with the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as the Houston Police Department's homicide and bomb squad were at the scene investigating.
It wasn't immediately clear whether the house was targeted, however, Eyewitness News found out the home is owned by an oil company executive.

On the news last night they said she took it inside but didn’t open it. the next day she took it outside to open it. She must have suspected something was not right but then why did she open it? Strange.
An article at the Houston Chronicle says that she had the box for several weeks, but hadn’t opened it because she didn’t know who it was from.
Domestic terrorism? Hate crime?
This is what Napolitano and DHS has been warning us about, I bet they get right on this.
Only took 20 years to catch Unibomber, after all, and he targeted enemies of Progressives too.
She didn’t want to get blood on the carpeting.
t she had the box for several weeks, but hadnt opened it because she didnt know who it was from.
That's pretty strange too.
Thats crazy strange. Who picks up a closed box on their doorstep or anywhere and doesn’t find out whats in it right away?
In these times, if I find a strange box at my doorstep, I check with my family members to see if they know anything about it. If not, I call the police.
You’re right. It is strange. It sounds as though she kept it outside, since there’s debris on the roof and in the yard. Can’t imagine why she’d open it after all that time.
If you got a package with no FedEx or UPS or USPS stickers, and you were not expecting anything, would you open it? If you were a BP exec wife would you?
Long ago I took a course in anti-kidnap, antiterror awareness. I don’t ever use the “free samples” that show up, and I still have the “how to recognize a letterbomb” card.
One report says she waited a day, another report says a week or so, either way, if they had reservations it should go to the PD, or the PD should come to it.
I hope she’s going to be OK, and that they catch the agent who did this.
And how often have you called the police?
A day,a week,no matter. Any wait at all strikes me as odd. Either she had a reason to open it or not.
I too hope they catch the perp but an intact box probably would yield many more clues.
Obama Youth just doing dear leaders bidding.
I haven’t found a box at my door. As I said, if I find one, I call the police.
This is what happens when an out of control dictator named B Hussein Obama villifies oil company executives.
I am a woman and if I suspected something no power on earth would make me open that box. There goes your argument. ;)
