Default Tomato Plant Looking Like Fiddleheads

Hello, friends...
I was visiting with a friend last week and she had some tomato plants with deformed leaves and greenery in a manner neither of us had ever seen before. These pics she sent me really don't do justice to what I saw but hope some of you can get the gist of it from them and render an opinion on what might be going on.

HINT: The deformed plants that are taking on odd shapes are located in a portion of her garden that she says was at one time a "burn pile" (I guess in an area for burning trash by the previous homeowners). Tomato plants elsewhere in her yard are not taking on these oddly fiddle-shaped protrusions - only those on the "burn pile", even though she has amended all the soil, etc.

Experts...what do you think?!IMG_1062.jpg

That looks like herbicide damage to me. Tomato plants are very sensitive to drift from spraying weed killers.

I thought maybe herbicide. I wonder if the plants will outgrow it if it is Weed Killer etc - seems a s if 3 sides of my property have lawn service and maybe they don't know the meaning of "drift"

If it is not real bad then they can outgrow it.
