Obviously a short somewhere. Check sockets for corrosion, rust etc where current could be traveling across, as well as take a look at wiring into rear if you can get to it. One other thing you could try to isolate, would be to try one bulb in at a time, perhaps one will cause fuse to blow & other won't, which will give you a reference point to start looking.

Fog light fuse keeps blowing


Check the fog lights for water intrusion, this will cause a short, also look at the wiring where it goes to the fog lights, look for worn wires where it runs through the body of the car, I know the short is one of these things, have seen it before.
