Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune Drivers stop to take in the sight of the historic "hall and parlor" house built in the late 1800's coming to rest off it's foundation due to high overnight winds at 335 Woodside Ave., in Park City, Sunday, December 23, 2012.

Emergency crews in Park City spent much of Sunday morning attempting to stabilize an historic home that was knocked over by strong winds.

Kurt Simister, deputy fire marshal, said the home at 335 Woodside had been jacked up above the foundation so it could be renovated. But sometime overnight the strong winds toppled the home back into the foundation, where it sat perched half in and half out.

He said no one was injured and there was no risk to health or safety of nearby residents.

Emergency crews closed to the street briefly Sunday as they removed propane tanks.
