Default Coolant crossover leak question

My Saturn VUE with a V-6 recently had the coolant crossover gaskets replaced. I drove it a total of 2 hours afterward and parked it in my garage at 11:00 p.m. At 3:00 a.m. my neighbor calls me to tell me the garage is on fire. When those gaskets get replaced does it require removal of any gaskets that seal engine oil? I'm wondering about an oil leak after the service that I did not smell?

Thanks
Eric

Perhaps the coolant passage was blocked causing something to overheat. Just a general question, not from specific knowledge about your engine.
