BED-STUY - Family and friends bid a final farewell Monday to a Brooklyn man who died last month from injuries suffered during a fire which police believe was set intentionally.

The funeral for Tyrone Corley, a well-known DJ and social worker, was held at The Cathedral of Greater Free Gift Baptist Church.

Corley, 56, was one of the two men who died from the Oct. 20 blaze on Hancock Street in Bed-Stuy. Investigators say their deaths are being treated as homicides.

Relatives say the large turnout at Corley's funeral is a testament to how loved he was by so many people.

Corley leaves behind four sisters and a brother as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

There have been no arrests, and police say they are still trying to determine a motive for the arson.
