A fire ant mount has no opening in the center like most ant mounds. Imported fire ants leave and enter the mound through underground tunnels, radiating from the mound.  In hard compact soils, these tunnels become visible on the surface.  They also have tunnels extending down to the water table when no surface water.  To learn more about how you can tell if you have fire ants, visit eXtension.org.
