FIRES are expected to calm across the Clarence Valley after a change in winds last night and another expected today.
Out of the 15 burning, only one is a high concern for firefighters, Morrow's Rd, south east of Glenreagh.
Rural Fire Service public liaison officer Helen Carlos said the winds were forecast to slow at time of print yesterday, and change from a south-easterly wind to nor-nor-westerly about midnight last night.
"That will pull it back away from Glenreagh and slow it down," Ms Carlos said.
"At about 11am it's forecast to change again to a north wind, but that should just continue to push the fire back onto itself."
Fire fighters continue to monitor all 15 fires around the valley as we remain in a very high fire danger state.
Anyone with concerns about their property should contact their fire brigade.
"We are asking residents to remember their bushfire survival plan and if their plan is to leave if they are not prepared, to leave early," Ms Carlos said.
