This can happen quite frequently in climates such as this. The best way to prevent this in the future is to wrap them well over winter. It can also help to add a little phosphorus and potassium to the soil. Here is an article to help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/fig-tree-winter-wrapping.htm
