Lowestoft Coroner George Leguen de Lacroix opened and adjourned an inquest into the death on June 2.
A post mortem examination revealed Tyrone died from severe burns and suffocation caused by smoke inhalation.
Initial reports found the fire started in Tyrone's bedroom where it was suggested he and his brother had been playing with matches.
But Mr de Lacroix adjourned the inquest so a full investigation into the blaze could be carried out.
