Fuel leaked through the carburetor into the engine you will need to rebuild the carburetor.

If it's a Tecumseh engine, the float was probably stuck open, and gravity drew fuel from the bowl through the combustion chamber, and down into the oil sump.

I've had some do this and sit long enough for the oil to then engage in the reverse flow and float up to the carburetor and maybe even into the gas tank.

Quite a mess !

An on/off, or open/shut fuel valve is a worth while investment.

You'll now have to clean the float needle and seat (among other things) and change the oil.
