Doesn't that depend on what the propellants are, though?
Kerolox or hydrolox shouldn't be nearly as toxic as hypergolic propellants...
Exactly. Soyuz rockets also contain Hydrogenperoxide, but this is also not that dangerous for humans.
UDMH and N2O4 is much worse stuff. UDMH is a powerful neurotoxin, N2O4 can combust any organic matter.A crashing rocket stage does mostly spread both substances over a wide field, without clean combustion.
