When Erik Hoffer purchased his new home in Frankfort, he saw a unique educational opportunity. 

Hoffer, the executive director of the Northern Illinois Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board, had the house retrofitted with sprinklers and opened his doors to the public Nov. 25 to give guided tours on a cause he cares deeply about.
