Question Is block needed?

If brick steps are being built that are 44"" high at the top and 72'' wide, do I need to lay block as a framework or can I go strictly with brick? also, should my fill inside be dirt?

You also need a footing to support the steps, I would make the steps out of block and concrete and the install the brick around it, Make a solid structure the brick veneer. Fill the middle with concrete debri and stones, the dirt will settle and the landing will sink.
