Hawaii County police said the man who had been hospitalized after an explosion involving the production of marijuana-derived oil has died.

Rasi Summers, 30, of Kea'au was pronounced dead at 5:20 p.m. Thursday at Straub Medical Center in Honolulu, where he was taken after suffering severe burns.

He had been listed in critical condition with second-degree burns, police said.

The explosion on Dec. 28 on 17th Avenue in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision in Puna knocked out windows, blew out doors of cabinets and melted plumbing fixtures, police said.

Police said at the scene, there was evidence of a laboratory used to manufacture a marijuana byproduct called butane honey oil.

Police said butane honey oil laboratories are becoming more prevalent on Hawaii island, as they are across the country.

A 28-year-old Puna woman was arrested and later released, pending further investigation.
