Just as Alaska bratt says check your carb. I had gas leaking into the oil and the entire engine was destroyed. Gas dilutes the oil and then there is no lubrication. FYI don't be worried about gas/fire as the gas is also diluted and is not very flammable, with gas it is the fumes that are highly flammable. I recommend rebuilding the carb draining the engine oil and keep your fingers crossed that you didn't damage the piston/sleeve/cylinder.

Rebuild the carb or adjust the lean, sounds like its getting too much gas that sounds very dangerous when gas hits exhaust it gets explosive, be careful.

First make sure you have oil in it. Next take off the air cleaner box. Try restarting it if it runs fine clear or replace the air filter. Also check to see if it’s getting spark.

It sounds like it is very likely you have gas in the oil. This happens when the needle valve in the carburetor is leaking gas thru and into the crankcase. That will have to be repaired and the oil needs to be completely drained and refilled before running. Another thing can be done as a temp fix and that is to place a fuel (gas) shutoff in the line and turn off when not running but the oil has to be changed. Hope this helps you.
