Rust usually presents with yellow or orange spots on the leaves - did your tree have symptoms like this?
All trees have bark - the outer covering of the stem - it doesn't have to be thick and crusty to be bark. Just scrape it very gently with your thumb nail - if it is green below the tree is alive.
How big is your fig tree?
Can you post a photo for us to see - there may be other clues which will help us.
