Help fuel leak

My brother was on his way home from work and noticed a major fuel leak. It is spraying from under the glow plug relay area. I need a little help seeing it is dark and cold out and don't have a lot of time to fix it. Already did a search and couldn't find any info.

odds are its the fuel filter drain valve or if you just put a fuel filter in it...it could be the o ring isnt sealing well...

You would think so but it is coming from under the glow plug relay, and is spraying not just dripping.

Clean it up and get it under a light, or have someone help you locate the source of the leak.

There are two solenoids on the top of the motor. The one to the back of the motor has what appears to be a fuel line running underneath it. What I need to know is, is there some type of connection underneath that bracket? It is literally spraying in all directions but up because of the bracket. What could be going on? It is pretty cold out right now, so I really don't feel like messing around with it at the moment. I would much rather know what I am up against before hand.

What's the best way to clean the diesel fuel off of the block?

Gloves, carb cleaner, and paper towels. Powerwasher may cause water to go places it shouldn't. It is diesel , not oil?

I stuck my camera down in there and saw only metal fuel lines there. If in fact my assumption is correct, and one of the metal lines ruptured, then I need to know if it is hard to replace/repair them and how much.
