Fusarium wilt questions

Lexington, KY(Zone 6b)

Okay, several questions. I'm pretty sure some of my tomatoes have Fusarium wilt. Before I "diagnosed" them with this, I threw some of the infected plants in the compost pile. Have I ruined my compost if it's really fusarium wilt? The puzzling thing is that there is a Pink Brandywine in the same bed with the Rose Heirloom that had it really bad, and it (the Brandywine) looks fine. The other odd thing is that one of the infected plants is a Big Beef which is supposed to be resistant to fusarium wilt, but it almost surely has it. It is in a bed with a Big Rainbow, and they BOTH look awful and appear to be dying. I have a Pink German that is over 10' tall growing in the ground in another part of the yard, and it is starting to show some yellow leaves at the bottom! I will die if it gets it! Any advice? I'm so disheartened.
