The other Balrogs were slain in the 1st Age. Glorfindel took one down (and died himself in the process) in the mountains surrounding Gondolin, Gothmog was slain by Ecthelion (who also died) in Gondolin, the rest were apparently slain in the War of Wrath.

Well, technically, Tolkien kind of left the question of whether any other Balrogs survived open. I think readers are meant to infer that Fred was the last of the bunch, but you never know.
