Stairs built over dirt in the house?
 
2 Attachment(s)

I pulled the drywall off near my basement stairs and noticed they are built right over the dirt. An addition was put on and it looks like they built the stairs where the old concrete stairs once were. I want to seal this area.

Can I pour concrete right over the dirt?

It looks like the brick wall where the old stairs used to be isn't underpinned.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
