Wrong gas, no oil, any recovery?

I tried to help out my parents while they were out of town. So, I went to their house and did the yard. Apparently, I put the wrong gas in the Homelite Blower (the unmixed, no oil gas he has for his lawnmower). I had no idea until it died and froze. I can't even pull the cord to start it. Is the blower completely ruined, or is there a way to 'unfreeze' the engine, relubricate it and try again?

Hello Randy!

Sorry to say it, but time to toss it and get a new one. If you happened to get it loose somehow, it probably wouldn't have enough compression to run anyway, and even if it did, it probably wouldn't for long.
