Did we "fry" the incubated eggs?

We found an abandoned nest of runner eggs and stuck them in the incubator. I don't know if they were developing or not, but our incubator went crazy last night and I found it at 120 degrees! We had just installed a new fan (it's a hovabator) yesterday so no idea what happened but did it kill any embryos that may have been developing? I have since gotten it down to 95 but...
Thanks for the help!

If it was at that temperature for any period of time, I imagine that the eggs are killed. I'm not sure what point in the incubation cycle they are at, but candling might give some idea as to whether or not they are still viable.
