Township trustees have worked together to form a fire district. Can they do that?

Yes.  Ohio Revised Code grants authority to township trustees to establish all necessary regulations to guard against the occurrence of fires (O.R.C. 505.37). Fire protection measures can take many forms.  Trustees may adopt fire code, authorize a fire chief to organize a volunteer fire company, enter fire protection contracts for service, or use their discretion to create a fire district of such portions of the township as they deem necessary.
