HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Three victims are recovering after a package bomb exploded at their home in South Texas over the weekend.

According to a Brownsville police spokesman, five-year-old Andrea Juarez is in critical but stable condition in Galveston. Her parents, 26-year-old Jesus Juarez and 30-year-old Iviz Machado, are both hospitalized in San Antonio; their conditions were reportedly stable.

The family of three found a package outside their Brownsville home Friday morning and then opened it. One explosive device detonated and all three family members were burned. Although police are following several leads, there are no suspects in custody.

The FBI in collaboration with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also investigating the incident.
