If Lara is standing with her back to the EARTH ELEMENT gate, the entrance to the FIRE area is on the far side of the PILLAR OF LIGHT. Go through the gate, which then closes behind you.
The passage widens into a large cave with a pool of weird, yellow lava. There are a number of square pillars standing in the pool. Some of these have burners on top, which ignite when Lara stands on or jumps over them.
There's also a map carved into the ceiling of the cave.
If you climb on the block to the right and light a flare, the "safe" pillars on the map will glow.
Start on the left side and take a running jump to the nearest pillar (#1).
From there, take another running jump over the next pillar to land on the pillar against the far wall (#2).
Turn right and take a running jump to grab the next pillar (#3), which is also against the wall. Pull up and turn right.
Take a running jump to land on the pillar with the large medi pack and shotgun shells on top (#4). This pillar will ignite after a moment...
...so grab the items and quickly backflip...
...onto the previous pillar (#3).
Now carefully line up the next running jump. You want to land on the same pillar where you got the goodies (#4) but on the side farthest from the exit.
Then when you take the running jump onto the pillar...
...you can immediately turn left, run, and jump, without wasting time setting up the jump. When you land on the ledge near the exit, stop so you don't fall through the trapdoor ahead.
