How dangerous is the peroxide? To put it into an understandable context one 20 kilogram lead-acid battery provides the same amount of energy as one kg hydrogen peroxide fuel cell.

OK, the fuel leak has happened and the sailors work to clean it up. A tool dropped on the floor or static electricity could cause a spark. The fuel ignites and causes the fuel tank to deflagrate, the fuel burns for a time and result in a detonation when it reach the warheads.
