The explosion occurred when Phra Panya Chotipanyo, 44, dissected fireworks out of curiosity in his living quarters at Wat Mai Rung-arun.

The monk suffered serious wounds to his torso, arms and legs and the blast destroyed his living quarters.

The fireworks were bought to celebrate a krathin merit-making ceremony next Sunday.

Authorities have stepped up warnings about the dangers of firecrackers in the lead-up to the Loy Krathong festival on November 12.

A number of firecracker-related injuries are reported each year during the festivities.
