Tyson discusses his brother and sister at detail in his autobiography, The Undisputed Truth. After calling his brother “weird,” as Tyson put it in a letter,

“We’re black guys from the ghetto and he was like a scientist – he had these little test tubes and was always experimenting. I was like: “White people do this stuff.” He once went to the chemistry lab at Pratt Institute, a nearby college, and got some chemicals to do an experiment. A few days later, when he was out, I snuck into his room and started adding water to his test tubes, and I blew out the whole back window, starting a fire in his room.”
