If you don't care about completing the time bomb challenge, just raise the Staff, grab the bomb, and roll it around to the right.
Position it on the pressure pad to temporarily shut off the flames...
...and and continue downstairs. Stepping on the second pad shuts off the flames permanently, in case you need to backtrack for any reason.

If you are attempting the Challenge: Complete the Tomb without Grabbing any Time Bombs, drop a remote bomb on the upper right side of the time bomb.
Move out of the way and then detonate your bomb to hurl the time bomb out into the open area to the lower left.
Use another remote bomb to blast the time bomb over to the right...
...and another to move the time bomb toward the pressure pad to the right of the flame vents.
You'll probably need to use another remote bomb or two to finesse the time bomb onto the pad. Just try not to blast the bomb off the edge. If you do, you'll need to go back and try again.
The flames stay off as long as the time bomb remains on the pressure pad, so you can proceed. Once you step on the second pad, at the top of the stairs, the flames shut off permanently, so you can let the time bomb explode.
In the 2-player co-op game, there are 3 pressure pads: one on the right and one on the left, in addition to the one beyond the flame vents. Both the left and right pads must be depressed in order to shut off the flames. If you're not doing the time-bomb challenge, one character can stand on the left pad, while the other rolls the time bomb around to the pad on the right. (This is not shown in the screenshots.)
If you are attempting the challenge, instead use remote bombs to blast the time bomb off its pedestal, as in the single-player version (above), then onto either the left or right pad. Getting the bomb onto the right pad is the same as in single-player. For the left pad, use remote bombs to move the time bomb as shown above.
Then have one player stand on the right pad while the other moves onto the middle pad to deactivate the flames permanently.
In 4-player co-op there are 5 pressure pads in all: 4 control the flame vents, the 5th is set beyond them at the top of the stairs. The basic strategy is the same, though. Have one of the Egyptians keep his or her staff raised. Then use remote bombs to position the time bomb on the leftmost pad (or use your hands if you're not attempting the time-bomb challenge).
Then have three characters stand on the remaining pads to shut off the flames. As in the other versions, when the remaining character gets past the flames and steps on the center pad (as Isis does here), the trap is deactivated permanently.
