Unidentified Queen

I was out searching when I saw this queen. I decided to catch it. Can anyone help me find out what kind of ant it is? I live in canada, and when I saw it, I immediately thought, "Fire Ant". I want to be sure, as I've heard fire ants can be difficult to keep. It has a red head, and abdomen, but the thorax is a reddish-orange

With no measurement nor pictures, there are many different ants this could be.
