Found a single news report on a Thai website updated 19:41h

It says it happened around 17:00h (5 PM) today.
One dead, 13 injured (?).

Expect to see some more news coverage tomorrow.

Not the first time and not the last as some of those rockets are made unsafe. Saw one once that exploded when it was lit.

Yesterday a flatbed truck passed by carrying a rocket for a display in our village. I was amazed by its size.  My wife wanted me to attend the festival, I declined her kind offer.
