Take them out and crank it. I think you have a cylinder full of gas. Just be careful, gas burns you know. So no spark.

Clear the cylinders and it should start up. Might take a bit if the plugs are fowled, and may run bad for a bit, but will then smooth out. Kind of sounds like you sucked a lot of gas in to the engine.

Yea, took them out and cranked it a few times. Made a mess, cleaned it up, put the plugs back in and she started after some effort. Ran really ruff for a while but when everything got clean out she ran fine. Thanks for the help.

Good to hear. I will say that is the worst FPR failure I have ever seen.

If you sucked a lot of gas into your cylinders, you should change your oil right away. Some of that gas will have leaked down the cylinder walls and is contaminating your oil. Could damage your engine if you don't do an oil change.
