10.09 pm UPDATE
Both the Werri Berri and the Border fires are in the process of being downgraded to advice level says FSC Public Liaison Officer Marty Webster.
"We had seen strong southerlies around the border, they're now abating and conditions are easing accordingly," Mr Webster said.
"There is no current threat to any built assets."
A number of crews had been stationed nearby Towamba and Burragate, but Mr Webster said conditions had been less severe than predicted and crews were able to respond to any threats quickly.
"We did have concerns for those areas so we loaded them up with resources, but they've fortunately been able to have a quiet night."
In the Werri Berri fire near Bemboka, Mr Webster said there had been some strong showers aiding fire fighters to battle small areas of fire activity up until 10pm.
"The Werri Berri areas have had some heavy showers, which have knocked the fire right down," Mr Webster said.
"Conditions have never climbed to quite as bad as anticipated and we've got through the day relatively unscathed," he said.
Wind gusts were dropping at Eden by 10.15pm with peaks back below 40kmh and averages dropping to around 20kmh, with conditions also easing north of Bega.
Crews have also been responding to some areas of spot fires around the Badja Forest fire with some fire activity near Coolagolite and Dignam's Creek.
Crews were also responding to some trees alight on the road near Wonboyn, while they had also earlier responded to reports south of Nethercote.
As of 9.15pm RFS Command said they weren't seeing significant increases in fire activity at either the Werri Berri or Border fires.
A spokesman for the RFS said as the southerly shift had moved through the Eden and Bega regions there has certainly been areas of fire activity, but nothing that would cause an upgrade to the status of either fire.
"Over the ranges they were expecting 40 to 65kmh winds and gusts up to 90kmh, we haven't seen any of those extremes at this time along the coast, but they are experiencing it further inland."
Everyone is urged to stay alert of the strengthening winds with the forecast for wind expected to peak around Midnight in Eden before steadily dropping off into Saturday morning.
Meanwhile gusts north of Bega are forecast to already be at their strongest and should continue to ease into the night.
"We are watching all the fires very closely at the moment as given those wind movements there is still the possibility in a situation change over the next hour or so," the spokesman said.
"But on the coast we haven't seen any increases significant enough that would warrant upgrading the fire to emergency level."
"That's the really good news right now."
Crews have been actively responding to any reports of fire and are remaining highly mobile to contain any movement of the fire front.
Crews are stationed around Towamba and Burragate, while further north crews have responded to spot fires around Cobargo and Coolagolite.
The RFS confirmed water-bombing efforts would be suspended through the night with a majority of the fire-bombing fleet classed as 'daytime only'.
However, the spokesman said some ambulance and military helicopters can operate throughout the night and could be deployed if the situation called for it.
A small fire was reported near Brogo, but crews have reported to have contained the fire quickly and it may have already been removed from the Fires Near Me app.
