    Undetermined cause but suspect the brick shelf broke.

    I'm assuming there is a block or concrete foundation behind the brick. I would suspect the crack is due to differential expansion between the different materials due to changes in moisture or temperature.

    I didn't think of that. That's why your an engineer and I'm "just an inspector".
