Your carbs bowl float is sticking allowing the gas to continue to flow when the engine is not running.And if you say it is ruining into the engine..check the oil for the presence of gas..if so change the oil,oil filter and remove the plugs and cover the tips to stop spark..turn the engine over to blow gas from the cylinders using a rag to catch the fluid...now to the fix..either take the carb apart and clean all the parts but there is no way to know if this will happen again..this has happened to my Husky. The best and easy fix is to install a inline fuel shutoff valve..where you can get at it easily...Just shut it off and let the engine use up the carb fuel..and when you start it again turn on the shut off valve let it set until the carb gets full about ten seconds..then start the engine...just got to rmember to do this every time you shut it down...works well for me...good luck.
