Strange brake problem

I have a 2007 Tacoma standard cab 4 cylinder. I have a brake line leak somewhere that is causing my driver side floorboard and mat to get saturated in brake fluid. Any idea where the hell this would be coming from?

look underneath the car and follow the brake line. more than likely you hit something that could have ripped the line. but weird that its leaking inside!

Is it a manual trans? The clutch master cylinder uses brake fluid. It's inside the cab on the clutch pedal linkage.
The brake master cylinder is in front of the firewall. It would have to leak through the vaccum booster to get into the cab from there.
