At the beginning of the outbreak, Los Angeles is operating in a state of 'business as normal,' despite there being outbreaks spreading throughout the city. Other than rumors, the general population of the city seem unaware of what is happening. Some citizens, such as Madison Clarke's neighbor [[Susan Tran|Susan]], witness zombie activity, as well as Madison's son Nick and a junkie, who also witnesses a zombie attack in a drug den situated in an [[Abandoned church]].[[File:Losangeles.jpg|thumb|L.A. at the start of the outbreak]]

By the end of the second day, there are signs that the outbreak is starting to spread and have been noticed by people within the city. In one incident that went viral via the internet, a man who had been involved car crash on a highway off-ramp attacks an [[Emergency Services|EMT]] who was attending to him. Several [[California Highway Patrol]] officers unsuccessfully attempt to subdue the man with their batons. Since this proved ineffective, they are forced to open fire. Other than being staggered and forced to one [[File:Pale_Faced_Junkie.PNG|thumb|The junkie who witnessed Gloria in the church]]knee, the man does not seem effective and does not go down until one officer shoots him in the head. The whole incident is captured on camera by news helicopters and bystanders, as well as witnessed personally by Travis and Madison.

By the third day, even more Los Angelenos are starting to become aware of the outbreak thanks to the increased police activity on the streets as well as the aforementioned leaks on the internet. Some citizens, including police officers who are aware that something is awry, begin to leave the city, causing traffic jams on the highways.

A police-involved shooting of a homeless man in downtown Los Angeles incite protests by concerned citizens who are unaware of the fact the homeless man was a zombie and believed it was just another case of police brutality. (The incident with the homeless man was one of an increasing number of such incidents over the past forty-eight hours). As the tensions and unease increase, the shooting of a woman (also a zombie and witnessed by Chris) at the scene causes mass panic. This incident sparks a full-scale riot in the downtown area. This grants infected individuals the ability to attack and kill people without much notice. Riot police are dispatched to contain the riot, but many are also attacked by the infected amidst the chaos. As the riot spirals out of control, the city's power grid begins to sporadically fail, causing rolling blackouts in the downtown area and outlying suburbs. At about this time, [[Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462|Flight 462]] took off from [[Los Angeles Airport|LAX]] bound for [[Phoenix]].

The riot continued to rage in the middle of the city and into the early hours of the following morning, allowing the outbreak to spread even further. Heavily armed units of the LAPD are seen shooting undead doctors and patients at a hospital which has been overrun. It can be assumed that the [[Los Angeles Fire Department|fire department]] becomes inoperative, as a massive blackout plunges the entire city into darkness, revealing fires in the streets and neighborhoods as even more panicked people tried flee the city. The next day, the Governor of California signs a state executive order mobilizing the National Guard and they proceed to enter the city to aid the ailing LAPD.[[File:Militarylastreet.jpg|thumb|left|Soldiers clearing a suburb of Los Angeles]]

The [[National Guard]] proceed to deploy search-and-destroy squads to find and destroy the infected. They have also set up twelve safe zones throughout the city and suburbs. Outside the zones, many infected and uninfected corpses lay in the streets, indicating that the military is indiscriminately executing both the infected and civilians outside the safe-zones- possible due to them believing that the uninfected had been exposed. Fires rage throughout the city. The civilians within the safe zones are assured that the National Guard are on the offensive, but this is untrue.[[File:Nationalguardstorm.jpeg|thumb|The National Guard storms the library]]

[[File:LAatnight.jpg|thumb|left|L.A. at night on the fourteenth day/morning of the fifteenth day]]By day fifteen of the outbreak, Los Angeles is shown to be in ruins. There are no man made lights to be seen in the city. Several buildings and city blocks, including iconic skyscrapers like One California Plaza and the Paul Hastings Tower, are on fire. The streets are either empty or full of infected, partially due to Daniel Salazar releasing those trapped inside the sports arena. The highways leading out of the city are jammed up with hundreds of abandoned cars, and the city is completely devoid of any man-made light. With [[Operation Cobalt]] in effect and the last major refugee center overrun by the infected, the military officially abandons the city.

In the first episode of season two, Los Angeles is shown being firebombed by the military in a desperate attempt to contain the infection, with the entire city in flames. The few survivors that managed to escape do so on boats, casting off into the Pacific Ocean as the city is destroyed.[[File:Losangelesfire.jpg|thumb|Los Angeles is firebombed by the military]]
